The Rhine Falls at SchaffhausenThe Rhine Falls at Schaffhausen

The Rhine Falls, the biggest waterfall in Europe, are a mind-blowing sight for even the most brazen of visitors.

You can approach either from the Schaffhausen side, where the car park is directly next to the waterfall, or down a flight of steps from Laufen Castle.

Breathtakingly beautiful - the Rhine Falls in Schaffhausen

Europe's biggest waterfall

With a width of over 150 metres, the Falls hurl immense quantities of water, thundering and seething, 23 metres down over the precipice. The most impressive view of the water's dramatic power is from the Rhine Falls basin, on the Schaffhausen side of the river. From here it is possible to take a boat ride out to the central rocks. An experience not be misssed!

From Laufen castle, perched high above the Rhine Falls, a footpath takes you past the seething mass of water to the "Fischetz" platform, directly next to the Falls..
